As a Spartan Race spectator, you will have viewing access of some obstacles to catch your family and friends running, climbing, and crawling their way through the course; you will also be able to enjoy some of the foods for sale on the grounds, and have the chance to enter in the raffles too, all while listening to the music entertainment.
How much will spectators pay? All racers, “will receive two complimentary spectator pass. Each additional spectator pass will be $5. Extra spectator passes can be purchased onsite at the spectator tent,” as cited on the official website.
Alternatively, you can spend an exciting day as part of the behind-the-scenes team that makes it all happen as one of the Spartan volunteers.
XDubai Spartan Races are nothing like any other runners’ competition; participants are timed, ranked and judged on a point score, as there are official penalties for each obstacle if you go around and not overcome them; failures add up to a given score at the end of the course. For recurring competitors, the total possible points are 300 that count toward the athlete’s leaderboard rankings.
